Jennifer Nettles’ CMA Songwriter Series Debuts on ‘Front and Center’

Public television’s critically acclaimed live music series, Front and Center, has again joined forces with the Country Music Association for a brand new episode of CMA Songwriters Series featuring six-time CMA Award winner and three-time Grammy Award winner Jennifer Nettles.

Filmed at New York’s Iridium, Nettles is joined on stage by CMA Award-winning and Grammy nominated singer/songwriter Brandy Clark to perform her hit song “Love Can Go to Hell.” Nettles is later joined by Amos Lee for two songs including Sugarland’s “Very Last Country Song.”

In an exclusive interview captured prior to the performance Nettles says, “my love of performance actually comes from a love of live performance. If it happens to translate through a camera or through a recording, I love that.” Nettles continues, “I love that we have the technology to record performances and repeat them as many times as we want, (whether) in our cars or in our headphones or on our televisions.”

Front and Center is currently in its seventh season.  The series features CMA Award winners, Grammy Award winners, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees, and emerging artists. The show has featured performances by Cheap Trick, Dawes, Shawn Mendes, Southside Johnny, Kaleo, Southside Johnny, The Cadillac Three, and Rob Thomas, as well as Steve Vai this season.
